Presented by the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH)
Thursday, October 6, 2016 | 2-3:15 p.m. ET
Access to health care and other critical services in rural communities is impacted by various factors from travel distances between locations to limited financial resources and provider capacity. Community health centers, supportive housing and social service providers, and other health system providers can benefit a great deal from partnerships that address social determinants of health and enable them to share information, coordinate successful strategies, and leverage resources.
This webinar will focus on:
- Understanding the characteristics and needs of the frequent user population in rural communities
- (Re)introducing the key “operators” and their roles in rural communities serving high-utilizers
- Highlighting strategies that are working to leverage both housing and health care resources.
The panelists will emphasize how they went about building their partnerships, the structure that addresses the needs in their communities, and the ongoing benefits.
